Correction appended: Nov. 12, 2012.
Court documents indicated that a preliminary hearing for the two former administrators charged last week with additional criminal counts in relation to the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse case was scheduled for this morning at Dauphin County Courthouse in Harrisburg, though the hearing did not take place.
Former Athletic Director Tim Curley and former Interim Senior Vice President for Finance and Business Gary Schultz were charged Nov. 1 with child endangerment, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to commit the previously mentioned crimes, as previously reported.
Curley and Schultz were charged in November 2011 with perjury and failure to report suspected abuse.
Former Penn State President Graham Spanier was also charged Nov. 1 with perjury, child endangerment, obstruction of justice and failure to report suspected abuse.
The charges all relate to the Sandusky case, in which Curley, Schultz and Spanier were all indicated in a grand jury presentment as having known of the abuse claims made against the former assistant football coach and choosing not to report them to police.
Sandusky was convicted in June on 45 counts of sexually abusing boys he met through his charity, The Second Mile. Sandusky was sentenced in October to serve 30 to 60 years in prison at the State Correctional Institution at Greene in Waynesburg.
Curley and Schultz have maintained their innocence through the duration of the case through their respective attorneys, Caroline Roberto and Tom Farrell. Their spokeswoman, Martine Charles, was unable to be reached for comment as of press time Sunday.
As it stands, Curley and Schultz will see trial Jan. 7, but the defense has made a request to push back the trial. The prosecution has said it would be OK with a trial delay.
According to a motion filed by the prosecution earlier this month, Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly wants to combine the trials of Curley, Schultz and Spanier into one trial. This would more than likely cause the trial date to be pushed back to later in 2013.
Spanier is scheduled to have his preliminary hearing Friday, according to court documents.
An earlier version of this article and its headline incorrectly stated that a preliminary hearing for Tim Curley and Gary Schultz would take place Nov. 12, 2012. As of press time, court documents indicated that a preliminary hearing would take place at 9 a.m. on Nov. 12, 2012, though the courthouse was closed Monday and the hearing did not take place. The above article reflects the correct information. The Daily Collegian apologizes for this error.
